Future of Research Communications and E-Scholarship


What is the force11

What is the FORCE11?

Future of Research Communications and E-Scholarship:

A grass roots effort to accelerate the pace and nature of scholarly communications and e-scholarship through technology, education and community

Why 11? We were born in 2011 in Dagstuhl, Germany

Principles laid out in the FORCE11 Manifesto


Force11 vision

FORCE11 Vision

  • Modern technologies enable vastly improve knowledge transfer and far wider impact; freed from the restrictions of paper, numerous advantages appear

  • We see a future in which scientific information and scholarly communication more generally become part of a global, universal and explicit network of knowledge

  • To enable this vision, we need to create and use new forms of scholarly publication that work with reusable scholarly artifacts

  • To obtain the benefits that networked knowledge promises, we have to put in place reward systems that encourage scholars and researchers to participate and contribute

  • To ensure that this exciting future can develop and be sustained, we have to support the rich, variegated, integrated and disparate knowledge offerings that new technologies enable

Are we really suffering from a lack of tools?

-or is it usable tools?

-or is it tools that are used?

-or is it awareness that there are tools?

-or are these even the right tools?

What can we do now

What can we do now?

  • Are there known best practices and tools that can/should be used now by the FORCE11 community? e.g., ORCID ID

  • Shouldn’t we be inventing the future?


What big issues are we not addressing

What big issues are we not addressing?

New roles and vanishing roles

  • Librarians are publishers

    • Scholars are curators

    • Publishers are archivists

    • Scholars are customers

    • Scholars are publishers

    • Everyone is a standards developer!

      • Is there still a role for everyone?


What big issues are we not addressing1

What big issues are we not addressing?

Are there broad agreements that need to be forged?

  • Open citations? Text mining across the corpus? An open alternative to Google Scholar?

    • Where is lack of coordination holding us back?

      Are the issues the same for all stakeholders?

  • Humanities and sciences

  • Developed and developing world

  • Technologists and scholars

  • Institutions and individuals

  • Scholars and taxpayers

    Can and should everyone be brought to the table for all discussions?


  • Questions for you

    • Users?

    • Tools?

    • Collaborators?

    • Advertising?

    • A bully pulpit?
